In a press release, the Sutherland Institute announces that it has released a set of recommendations "to improve HB 116 as Utah prepares to make it law -- or defend it in court -- two years from now." Says Sutherland Pres. Paul Mero:
"Accountability is the key -- Utah has the right, as a sovereign state, to insist on personal accountability from anyone within its borders. Law enforcement needs to know who is here in Utah so officers can effectively find the serious criminals hiding among a large group of people driven underground by the unintended consequences of enforcement-only policies."
